* LovingAShadow: An nurse who probably isn't all that stable to begin with becomes infatuated with Vader and starts to fantasize about him and her getting together. Everything she believes about him is nothing more than fantasy based on what she believes him to be. Interestingly, she is right about some important things about him but at the same times becomes so delusional that she can't separate reality from fantasy. When she finally confesses her feeling to him, he promptly kills her and calls for her body to be taken away. Interestingly, Vader kills her quickly with a simple stab with his light saber. His expression was one of indifference with perhaps a twinge of sadness. She probably reminded Vader of some unpleasant things and probably felt that she just wan't worth his rage but only pity.
* MercyKill: How Vader killed the StalkerWithACrush nurse when she intruded on him in his quarters unmasked and confessed her love for him. It's a mercy kill because he did it quickly and and painlessly with a quick stab through the chest. Keep in mind that Vader has killed people in horrible and painful ways for less. When two storm troopers saw him accidentally without the helmet, he telekineticaly lifted them and then twisted their heads around backwards and that was just for accidentally seeing him without the helmet. Here, the Nurse intruded on him while in meditation without his helmet and then confessed to loving him. The look on his face when he does it is one of indifference or perhaps melancholy. It's reasonable to assume that the nurse reminded him of things he doesn't like to think about and he could also most likely sense her mind and emotions with the force, realizing that she was both mentally disturbed and being completely honest. He may have felt a rare moment of pity and simply put her down as opposed to slaughtering her.

* WrongGenreSavvy: A very odd case in that the character isn't wrong about what story they're in but rather the role that they play in it. The nurse who falls in love with Vader thinks that he's a TragicMonster who will return her affections, because all that he needs to be redeemed is for [[IJustWantToBeLoved someone to show him love.]] While this is in fact true, with him being a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds, and ultimately what happens to him with [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes his son Luke]] hitting him with IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight causing him to [[HeelFaceTurn turn on the emperor]] to [[PapaBear save his]] [[LoveRedeems son]], she is not the main character she believes she is and is at best an AscendedExtra via DayInTheLimeLight. When she sneaks into his quarters and confesses her love to him, Vader responds [[RealityEnsues with a lightsaber through her gut.]]

** For a more benevolent example, in issue #1, Darth Vader slays a Kaiju that had driven an entire planetary civilization into hiding in the rubble. Vader does not really care as it distracted him from repairs on his TIE, damaged in the middle of a space battle.



* SelfFulfillingProphecy: Tylux's immense fear of failing Vader leads to him expending a vast amount of resources in a mad attempt to capture one U-Wing. No points for guessing his [[YouHaveFailedMe fate]] when the Sith Lord learns about this.

He ends up failing to get the U-Wing, sacrificing his entire TIE contingent, and ruining his Star Destroyer. No points for guessing his [[YouHaveFailedMe fate]] when the Sith Lord learns about this.

Added DiffLines:

* HeroicBSOD: The hotshot rebel Pilot in #4 eventually loses his composure when Vader wipes out his squad and fails to take a potentially lethal shot at Vader's TIE. And his fleeing the battle only leads the Empire back to the Rebel Base...

Added DiffLines:

* ButForMeItWasTuesday: Vader seems more ''annoyed'' than surprised when he casually murders the nurse for sneaking into his quarters while he has his armor off.
-->'''Vader:''' [[TranquilFury Someone get this garbage out of my quarters.]]


* TooDumbToLive: The nurse who falls in love with Vader, a man who kills his own subordinates over [[BadBoss the pettiest possible grievances]] tries to confess her love by ''sneaking into his quarters'' while he has his armor off, the time when he feels most vulnerable. No points for guessing how he responds to her confession.

No points for guessing how he Vader responds to her the nurse's confession.

Added DiffLines:

* TranquilFury: That nurse was honestly lucky that Vader looked rather bored with her confession and just went for a simple stab with the lightsaber.
